Harry recently paid tribute to his late mother by naming his newborn daughter Lilibet Diana. He was also reported to be planning to honour his mother next month too on what would have been her 60th birthday. He was planning to join brother William at Kensington Palace to unveil a statue of Diana, who tragically died in a car crash in 1997.

But it is not clear whether Harry will fly to the UK from his new California home for the event, particularly following his controversial comments earlier this year about William being “trapped” and on “a different path” to him.

Royal expert Ingrid Seward added she does not think Harry and William will “repair their relationship” in time for the event.

She told Express.co.uk: “I am sure Harry will be there and put on a good show with William.

“You can’t repair a relationship overnight so whether they try or not remains to be seen.”

Meghan is also unlikely to accompany her husband and instead could stay in the US with Lilibet and their two-year-old son Archie.

The Queen is also not expected to attend so that she doesn’t “overshadow” the two brothers.

A source said: “She feels this is William and Harry’s event and would not want to overshadow them.”

It was also recently reported the brothers may give “separate speeches” at the event as their strained relationship may not be repaired in time.

A source told the Sun: “They will both move heaven and earth to be there.

“They commissioned the statue together. It is very important for them.

“There is, of course, hope the memory of Diana can repair their relationship but that seems a long way off right now.

“The brothers will be physically together for the ceremony but want to make their own personal addresses.

“You might have thought they’d go for a joint statement and speech but that’s not the case. Each has insisted on preparing their own.

“It is a big concern that their body language will suggest all is not well and they won’t present a united front.”

It comes after Harry told Oprah that he felt let down by his father and that “there’s a lot of hurt that’s happened” between them.

The Duke also added he felt trapped in the Royal Family and shared his “compassion” for William and Charles being unable to leave their roles.

He said: “My father and my brother, they are trapped. They don’t get to leave. And I have huge compassion for that.”

He also added his relationship with his brother William was “spaced” but he loved him to bits.

Harry said: “As I’ve said before, I love William to bits. He’s my brother. We’ve been through hell together. I mean, we have a shared experience. But we’re on different paths.”

William was the first royal who spoke out publicly after the interview was aired as he said he had not spoken to Harry.

The Queen also issued a statement saying “while some recollections may vary”, the issues would be taken “very seriously”.
